I have had a child that has been exhibiting aggressive behavior with tantrums to pushing and hitting. I have had some breakthroughs with one child that was biting her in response and have had some relief with the 1st child parents that now fully understand their child's behavior so that's helpful that they are on board with supporting her emotional development. this child does run from a situation and goes to our reading corner and I have let that be our calming corner and moved our emotions poster to that corner to help show and identify her emotions and work on breathing to help calming and then to identify how her emotions are changing as she calms
I have a child who anytime she's redirected or I intervene when there's a tussle & try help her ask to share or choose another toy, etc she almost always throws herself on her back w/ blood curdling screaming. Feels like the teaching moment is always thwarted. I usually will take her aside, hold her & when she's calm try to address her feelings & needs. Not sure what else to do.
feel free to use it as an example and yes I feel it's a 50/50 on success but definitely still an ongoing challenge and now especially since her family has asked for her to go from 2 days a week to fulltime starting in August. she does randomly run and push other children and not for clear reasons and has done this in front of both of her parents
she pretty instantly
A planned method we used in the kinder class I worked in this year was called “iMessage.” Rather than the students telling each other they are mean or becoming terribly frustrated, we modeled them saying … I feel sad when you took my toy. The other student was given an opportunity to say sorry or to say they won’t do it again.
yes we do identify and label emotions
I have a child who exhibit attention seeking behavior and tends to intentionally disrupt group gathering time or play to have one teacher keep him company. He shouts loudly, spits, or rolls around until he gets the attention he seeks. Through socio-emotional curriculum, teachers helped him establish friendships and that seemed to calm him but we have noticed him becoming excessively possessive..he holds his friends and insists to “be his best friend”…Other kids run away from him because he gets aggressive sometimes.
yes I've tried when I see her take a beeline for that child.
I provide the language constantly
i don't make them share. I'll help her all for a turn, if she gets a no, I'll help her with other options
I have a thought on helping with understanding taking turns....
Turned 4 last February, became a brother last year…
I have a play tunnel that I bring out and I find that it really helps them understand taking turns and direction on we go in the pink side and come out the blue side and we go through one at a time and they love and support each other on it being whoever's turn and then their own turn
The children and teachers come up with “House Rules” to keep their environment a yes space.
The children are always excited to contribute their ideas and gives them opportunities to explain why they said a certain house agreement. I type it up their words and sometimes we pass a basket around during circle time and they pick a card with one agreement..We discuss to review some days
I use books like Listening time, Hands are not for hitting, teethare not for biting and Good biting, bad biting (although I don't care for the word bad being used)
yes I do
Our class puppet, Mr Elephant, recently came out with a black eye and a band aid. The children were all curious what happened to him
It gave me an opening to talk about gentle movements..Mr Elephant was accidentally kicked by Harry the Horse. They are best friends.
I love that example of Mr elephant getting accidentally hurt👏👏💖
A child piped up and said: “Harry, you know to sit like a mountain (hugging legs), criss cross or a line (legs extended) so you guys have space to dance!
The types of sitting were part of the house agreements. Keeps everyone safe
“When Sofie’s Feelings Gets Really Really Hurt” by Molly Bang for older kids
the pout pout fish? glub glub
for death in family, I usually ask parents first how they approach death. Sometimes they prefer a more scientific or religious…
I also borrow books and send it to the parents to read for their children
Instead of me having to read it to everyone in the whole class
Love this so much. Play Support .thank you for affirmation
I’ll try yes, and…. Been more focused with uninterrupted play lately but this one is a good thing to do again
